Fees Explained

All our Anaesthetic fees are in line with National Guidelines published by “The Association of Anaesthetists of Great Britain & Ireland” (AAGBI).*§

Anaesthetic fees are billed directly to yourself or to your Private Medical Insurer (PMI) and are separate from fees paid to your surgeon or the hospital. Professional Anaesthetic fees may not be included in self-funded hospital packages. 

Some PMIs set a maximum amount that they will reimburse for anaesthetic services, and this may vary based on your policy. Different insurance providers also reimburse different amounts for the same procedure.

Our W1 Anaesthetists are all Consultants, signifying their appointment to the highest grade of hospital doctor in the UK. They are all officially registered as “Specialists” on the General Medical Council (GMC) Specialist Register and undergo regular appraisals to ensure they stay current with continuing professional development.

Despite being both “recognised” and “registered” by both the GMC and the Royal College of Anaesthetists, your Anaesthetist may have chosen to set a fee greater than those reimbursed by your PMI and so are referred to by them as not being “fee assured/a recognised provider”.

Therefore, if your Anaesthetist is not “fee assured/a recognised provider” with your PMI, they may choose to only partially contribute or not contribute any payment towards your anaesthetic fee. Please be aware, therefore, that there may be a shortfall that is your responsibility to settle. We strongly recommend that you contact your PMI before your admission to hospital, as you will ultimately be responsible for ensuring that the anaesthetic fee is paid for in full, regardless of your policy cover arrangement with your PMI.

You will ideally have been quoted the anaesthetic fee for your surgery by the surgeon’s secretary. If not, once you have the code(s) of your procedure,  you can then contact our office by phone (020 7636 9155) or by email ( to get a quote of the anaesthetic fees. You can also ask your surgical secretary to contact us for a quote on your behalf if you wish. If you would like to settle your fees in advance, this can be done by calling our office or via BACS transfer following the instructions in your quote letter/email. 

Please note that very rarely, the anaesthetic fees may change at the time of surgery if the procedure and care differ from that planned.

Please do not hesitate to contact our office if you have any queries regarding fees. Our secretaries are more than happy to answer any questions that you may have.

Many thanks.
